User guide:


Use this feature to:

  • Create decks of flashcards of various types (multiple choice, definitions, fill in the blanks...)
  • Create transcriptions, and potentially translate them
  • Translate documents
  • Summarize documents
  • Create notes

How it works?

The creation process is divided into 3 parts.

Choose content to process, 3 choices:

  • An existing document (pdf, docx, pptx, .txt, mp3, wav)
  • Copy/paste some text
  • Insert a YouTube or Wikipedia link or any other webpage (You can also insert a series of links using a semi-colon ";" as a seperator)

Choose how you want to save the content(optional):

Pretty straightforward, you can either choose to create a new deck or add it to an existing deck. If you do not choose or name a deck we will do that for you.

If you do not choose any customization options the standard approach is to provide a series of definition and multiple choice questions.

Customize the output (optional):

Here you have several options, most of them should be self-explanatory. You do not have to use the advanced options but can do so if you want to try and refine your results.

Note that the creation process for flashcards, transcriptions… is the same. For quizzes, once the deck is created you will be able to select questions from the deck and create/assign the quiz.

Notes:

  • Once the process is launched you don’t have to remain on the page. A pop-up will appear notifying you when your deck is ready. If you go to the decks page (or refresh the decks page), you'll see your deck with the cards inside.
  • The process can take a few minutes, depending on how busy our servers are and the size of the document you are processing.
  • Please don't hesitate to give us feedback on the content created.

This is the main navigation page, from here you can get an overview of all the decks you have created and their content. You also have shortcuts to use the decks for different purposes.

It's also from this page that you can re-access the creation page or access public decks by clicking on the plus sign on the bottom right of the screen

Use this feature to:

  • View the contents of each deck. This includes cards, notes, summarize, transcriptions, source files, assignments (tests or worksheets), and also parent and child decks.
  • Access all the features related to individual decks such as sharing, editing, test/worksheet creation, exporting, printing...
  • View the data related to that deck

Use this feature to:

  • Create quizzes/worksheets to print out
  • Create quizzes to assign through the platform
  • Assign quizzes
  • Access created quizzes
  • Take assigned quizzes
  • View results

How it works:

If you go to your decks page, you will find an option to create a quiz. If you click on that, it will allow you to go through the quiz creation process. Select the questions you want to put on the test (you can also edit them in the first screen). Then, in the next page, you can decide on the marks per question, test name, set a time limit… (not all options are fully implemented). Finally, you can assign the tests.

If you go to account → tests, you will be able to see the tests you have created/assigned/taken. You can also access the quizzes/worksheets for each deck in the deck manager.

The quizzes are automatically graded, but this only works really well for MCQ questions and somewhat well for definitions. Still, for non-MCQ tests, I recommend reviewing all the answers submitted and making sure the appropriate amount of marks have been assigned. You can do that in quizzes taken.

Use this feature to:

  • Edit the deck attributes, such as name, description...
  • Make the deck a public deck
  • Make the deck a child of another deck
  • Edit individual cards
  • Add cards individually
  • Regenerate individual cards (this currently only works with definitions. If you are unhappy with the definition given, or the response is too short you can click on the recycle symbol and we will create a new one for you).

A note about child/parent decks: In order to better organize content, I have created a system where every deck can be a parent or child of another deck. This way, users can easily build knowledge trees with the lowest order levels of understanding having no child decks, and the highest order decks having no parents.

For example, if I were to create decks related to the supply and demand, the lowest order deck would be definitions of key terms such as supply, quantity supplied, demand, quantity demanded... a parent of that deck would be one that has content testing the user's ability to explain how the law of demand works, and a parent of that deck could be a deck which focuses on evaluating the use of market mechanisms.

We have released our first game Cepha-Flex. In Cepha-Flex you compete against other to demonstrate your mastery of a Deck. The creator of the game choses a deck from their library and creates a game, they can then share the invite link with others who wish to participate. Each round has two phases. During the initial phase a question is shown to all players and they must write (in secret) what they believe is a very convincing answer. During the second round all answers written by players as well as the correct one are displayed to all players. The players must vote for which one they think is the right answer.

Points are awarded both for guessing the right answer (2 points) as well as for having others guess your answer (1 point)

This can be played with all decks but depending on the type of cards the game will vary a little. For example if playing with a deck of terms, the goal would be to write the most appropriate definition...

The game ends after a pre-determined amount of rounds and the player with the most points is the winner!

Use this feature to:

  • Create groups, invite users to group.
  • Store decks in the group or copy decks from groups you are in.
  • At this time, only cards from each deck can be shared. If you would like specific features implementing in regards to groups, let me know, and I will prioritize them.

Here you can search for decks made by others and copy them to your account. If you would like to make a deck you have created public, you can do so in "edit deck".

Use this feature to:

  • Study individual decks (if selecting the deck in decks) or all decks, if going straight to study from the nav bar.
  • If studying individual decks, you also have access to our AI interface where you can get more information about each individual card.

How it works:

The study feature is a spaced repetition system. The cards listed as due are unique cards, so the actual amount of reviews you will do will be higher than that. Right now, the cards are queued, and when reaching the end of the queue, the queue is refreshed depending on whether you answered cards correctly or not. At most 20 new cards loaded so as not to overwhelm the user. Currently, there is no customization possible, but I hope to implement some in April. Feedback on this is greatly appreciated.

On Mobile:

  • Regular cards: For most cards on mobile, you can swipe left if you don’t know the card, and right if you do. At that point, it will display the content. At that point, you can just swipe again in any direction and it will move on to the next card. You can also double-tap.
  • MCQ: Since there are options presented, swiping left or right doesn’t work for MCQ questions. Instead, you have to select the response and then double-tap to go to the next card.

On desktop:

The process is similar, except that you can’t swipe. Instead, you can select the appropriate option and either double-click (for MCQ) or you can also just click next (for regular cards).

No more cards to study:

If you reach the end of your deck, you will be informed that you have no cards left to study and asked if you want to study anyway. If so, you will enter a different mode (with a very, very ugly layout for now! It’s on my to-do list!). This will allow you to cycle through the cards, but none of the data will be retained or affect the spaced repetition system.
